    Follow the clutch flexible line to where it enters the clutch slave cylinder at the drivers side of the transmission bell housing about 3:00 0'clock on the bell housing, at the back of the clutch slave cylinder at 12:00 is a bleed screw. Fill the reservoir, get a friend to slowly pump the clutch pedal, hold it down open the bleed screw ,pump the pedal a few times again get him to hold it down crack open the bleed screw again and continue bleeding the hydraulic system until no further air comer out of the system and the pedal gets firm.

    There is an allen wrench fitting on the slave cylinder that opens a bleeder. It is very hard to bleed.
